Among TopGuides most popular packages are:

Family Safari

Experiencing the wilderness as a family makes for memories that will never be forgotten. Whether through a gaze of childlike wonder or with eyes that have seen the world, the wild will enchant and enthrall each person in its own unique way.

Photographic Safari

Tanzania’s endless diversity of landscapes and wildlife, and the drama of its scenery, are enough to captivate any photographer. This carefully curated safari is designed to ensure that anyone from an amateur to a pro will have plenty to train their lens on, and a lifetime of memories to take home.

Lolkisale Camp Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

Lolkisale Camp is situated right in the heart of Tarangire National Park, on the edge of an open wetland. Here, you’ll have the unique experience of watching the drama of nature unfold while sipping a coffee or wine on your front porch. In these wetlands, the view changes each day as different herds pass by in search of water, and after them, the big cats that inevitably follow.


And, since we are so well situated within the park, your adventure begins at first light. There’s no waiting at the gate to get in.

Our boutique camp is composed of eight, custom-designed luxury safari tents with attention paid to every detail. Everything from the soothing color palette, to locally-woven rugs, to the soft touch of your sheets at night was selected to bring luxury and local flavor to this secluded corner of our beautiful surroundings.


The dining tent is large and airy, allowing space for you to hide away in a secluded corner with your love, or unite the whole group for a large family meal.

In our lounge, you can plan your upcoming drives, share stories, or listen to the afternoon rains while enjoying our fully-stocked bar and carefully-chosen wines, along with a selection of local arabica coffee, freshly brewed tea, sparkling water and soft drinks.

Osero Camp Serengeti

With just eight tents, we have stayed true to our signature boutique style, with attention to every detail and personal touches in all we do.

Osero’s mobile nature means we can offer you the best of two worlds: the splendor of the Northern Serengeti while the Migration explodes back and forth across the majestic Mara River – and the vast, verdant plains of Southern Serengeti while the herds amass for calving season.

Osero is designed solely for exclusive use, guaranteeing privacy, intimacy and the warm hospitality that characterizes any TopGuides experience. We are proud to have created an elegant tented bush home that opens you up to Nature while cocooning you in creature comforts and luxurious touches.

Our team is there just for you, waiting to anticipate your every need, and ensuring each day is tailored to your wishes. Whether you’re ready to hop out of bed before sunrise for a day of exploring, or you’d like to cozy up with a book and a hot tea, we’re here to give you what you need. Anything is adaptable to make your dream African safari trip come true.

Serengeti Plains Camp Serengeti

TopGuides Bush Camps in East Africa unveils its newest and most stylish addition which opened on June 15th — Serengeti Plains Camp in Tanzania’s safari heartland.

With seven elegant safari tents, the camp lies in the Eastern Serengeti, an area known for big cats including a melanistic (black) serval and the region’s largest cheetah population. The Great Migration moves through the region on its annual journey to the nutrient-rich grasslands of the southern plains.

The area is a wildlife photographer’s paradise and much less crowded than elsewhere in the legendary national park. Serengeti Plains Camp beckons those who seek the rustic romance of a bygone safari with the remote comforts and convenience of the modern era.

Leleshwa Camp Maasai Mara

The Great Wildebeest Migration is undoubtedly one of East Africa’s biggest safari attractions, with the herds typically visiting Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve from June to October each year. During these months, our ‘Leleshwa’ Camp is set up in Ol Derekesi Conservancy on the Mara Reserve boundary and overlooking the Sand River, a part of the Mara that is first to receive the vast herds each year as they cross the border and spill over the plains of the Mara.

The area between the Sand River and the Tanzania border has possibly the lowest vehicle density of any part of the Mara ecosystem, meaning true privacy on game drives in the jewel in Kenya’s safari crown. Remote and topographically varied, the picturesque area has a wide variety of resident game to search for, regardless of where the migrating herds have reached. In addition to amazing game-viewing by day and night, you’ll be able to explore the bush on foot, meet and share stories with Maasai tribesfolk, splash around and cool off in the Sand River during the heat of the day and enjoy having a very special part of the Mara to yourself.

Leleshwa Camp is available on a exclusive or shared basis and can accommodate up to 15 people in seven luxury tents. Our spacious, custom-made tents are set on raised earthen platforms and all have a private verandah with views over the Sand River valley and hills beyond, and en-suite bathrooms, with flushing toilets and piping hot showers.
